BENNINGTON, Vt. – The Vermont State Police and the Vermont Police Canine Association have announced that a total of 24 K-9's have received bullet and stab protective vests.
State Police credit the efforts of Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a non-profit organization in Massachusetts, for allowing the police dogs to have the vests.
According to Vermont State Police, 12 of their K-9's received the protective vests and 12 Municipal K-9's were also recipients.
Each vest costs $950 which includes a five year warranty. Vest Interest in K9s was established in 2009 to help law enforcement agencies purchase the potentially lifesaving body armor.
